Fatal car vs. tree leaves one driver dead in Glen Burnie, MD

March 19, 2021

On March 8, 2021, a 20-year-old man was killed in a car crash when his vehicle veered off the road and struck a tree. Police said the crash occurred early in the morning around 3:30 a.m. on Ritchie Highway near Norfolk Road in Glen Burnie, Maryland.

The driver was killed at the scene. Police don’t believe speed was a factor, but his toxicology report is pending.

In many cases, an accident may not have a clear-cut cause. If there are limited witnesses or multiple factors are in play, it’s easy to speculate how a crash happened. The driver’s family and their legal representation may need more information to prove that this was a wrongful death case.

Miller Stern Lawyers can help. They’re a team of legal experts based in Baltimore, MD, that represents families in surrounding counties, and they’re uniquely qualified to handle wrongful death cases.

Wrongful death lawsuits are filed against parties who may have negligently contributed to or caused a fatality. It’s unclear what (or who) may have caused the driver to leave the roadway and crash his vehicle into a tree. It’s entirely plausible that another driver forced the man off the road and then left the scene. It’s also possible the man’s vehicle malfunctioned and caused him to lose control.

In these types of cases, Miller Stern will conduct a thorough investigation, interview anybody who may have witnessed something about the crash, and collect evidence at the scene. They carefully review state and federal laws and regulations that apply to each case. A thorough investigation is critical to winning wrongful death cases because even the smallest detail may prove that the driver in this case wasn’t at fault. The outcome of a wrongful death case could help the victim’s family receive the compensation they seek.
